The Warriors: With Luke Walton taking over as interim coach, I really didn't know what to expect, yet I kept an open mind.

In a worst case scenario, we could have started the season at 1-5. Maybe even 3-2 and I would have been happy with 5-1. What the fans and this team is experiencing right now is unheard of. We're demolishing teams left and right and on top of that we're the only undefeated team in the NBA! At one point it felt like I was watching an NBA 2k16 video game with the big leads and insane scoring vs the real deal.

In just six games Stephen Curry is putting together one helluva highlight reel. He's also complemented with such a complete group of player. Guys like Festus Ezeli and Harrison Barnes are stepping up. Our B-Squad is extending leads and with the absence of Andrew Bogut, our bigs are stepping up in a major way.

We aren't a selfish bunch especially last nights performance where we racked up 40 assists over Denver's 23. Rebounding isn't half bad though there's alway room to improve in the free-throws/turnovers department. Who can really complain — we're owning teams right now!

The Kings on the other hand are still searching for their identity. I personally think they have a solid line up. It's that 1-5 record that's written on the wall. Still too early to call it a wrap, there's still time to make adjustments. After last night's loss to the Houston Rockets, the Kings need to find a way to keep up with the Dubs.

Having DeMarcus Cousins and Willie Cauley-Stein (questionable) out may make the challenge even greater. On the bright side it should be fun to see Steph and Seth go head to head in tonight's match up.


Predictions: (#hashtag edition)

#StephGonnaSteph: Steph is gonna continue to Steph.

#InFestusWeTrust: Contract season. This isn't the Ezeli of last year! Highlight night for the big man, his defensive contributions will be appreciated tonight! #PayTheMan

#DubsBenchTransition: The Warriors bench rotation is going to be a headache for Sacramento if our squad plays it right. Our #DubSquad is going to have a solid night. #SelectYourPlaymakers

#Splash!: That single word the opposing team dreads against Golden State. Chance of rain inside of the Sleep Train Arena this evening!

#CurryVsCurry: I won't lie, this would be fun to see! I predict Steph will have a big night, but who knows... his presence may make Seth step his game up. #BroVsBro

Win Prediction: #Warriors win it by 15 on the road. Let's get it!
